Panda Aventures
460 2ème Rue Est, Rimouski (Québec) G5M 1R6
Tél: (418) 725-PANDA (7263) /
Proprietor and Rimouski native, Steve Gaudreau, is a genuine snowmobile guy; a great one at that. He rents sleds, motorcycles, ATV’s and more. Panda is the only rental provider in Quebec that carries all four brands of sleds, so you should be able to ride something you’re familiar with. You could even go crazy and try out something completely different. I did. Rental fees hover around $200 a day, depending on the model. Weekly rates are even better. The cost includes helmet, clothes and boots, which you may not need.
